Mad About You The Complete Fourth Season (1995 1996/Shout! Factory DVD Set)


Picture: C+ Sound: C+ Extras: D Episodes: B-



I was never the biggest fan of Mad About You, but the show is not as bad as you mighty think for a later sitcom hit. We first covered the Third Season at this link:





It was with some curiosity that I began watching The Complete Fourth Series and I was surprised that the show was still pleasantly consistent, smarter than I gave it credit for and that a subtle chemistry between co-stars Paul Reiser and Helen Hunt remained. All 24 episodes are here over four DVDs and what is set up like the end of the whole series turns out to only be the middle of it.


The highlight episode is Yoko Said, where Yoko Ono plays herself and is very good and willing to send up her persona and controversies in a very likable episode and yes, the original Beatles and John Lennon music is retained here on this disc in an increasingly rare feat of licensing for DVD. Very amusing.


The 1.33 X 1 image and Dolby Digital 2.0 Stereo are the same as the previous DVD set and there are surprisingly no extras.
